Piano Is Key To Brown’s Studio
By Christopher Walsh: 8/9/2011
There are few experiences more pleasing than to sit at an ornately carved 1881 Steinway D Centennial concert grand piano as its unimaginably honeyed tones fill the room. Add a brilliant, sunlit view of the Hudson River, and you just may transcend to the astral plane.
“The piano is extremely special,” agrees Louis Brown, principal of L. Brown Recording, located in New York’s historic Film Center Building. “They only made around 400 of these, between 1876 and 1884, for the Centennial of the United States. Doing classical music, I have to have something unique, and a Steinway D was a must.”
